Be Bush­fire Ready!

Eastern Reporter - - News -

As warmer weather ap­proaches and the bush­fire sea­son gets un­der­way, now is a good time for res­i­dents to en­sure their prop­erty is bush­fire ready. The bush­fire sea­son can pose a se­ri­ous threat to prop­erty and it is im­por­tant that home­own­ers take a proac­tive ap­proach to re­duc­ing any risk. For blocks over 2000 square me­tres a three me­tre fire break should be es­tab­lished around the perime­ter. For smaller prop­er­ties, own­ers should re­move flammable ma­te­rial, such as dead plants and long dry grass, from the en­tire block and lawns should be mowed reg­u­larly. With high tem­per­a­tures once again pre­dicted for sum­mer, it makes sense to be bush­fire aware and ready. The bush­fire sea­son runs from 1 Novem­ber 2017 to 30 April 2018. Con­tact the City’s Rangers for ad­vice on mak­ing your prop­erty bush­fire safe by call­ing 9272 0972.
